We understand the intricacies of worldwide health care delivery and are especially sensitive to the needs of those in the missionary market. We created an entire missionary division so we could provide specialized products and services exclusive to the missionary community. Over time, we have earned a reputation for excellence by providing quality, dependable medical insurance programs to mission sending organizations like yours and hundreds have found a partner in us that they can rely on and trust to service the worldwide needs of their missionaries.
MP+International® was designed to provide medical insurance to missionary groups by offering coverage while outside their country of residence. We recognize that nowhere are stable premiums more important than within the missionary community. Our attention to this fact begins with our unique plan design. MP+International offers a wide range of worldwide benefits that follow missionaries wherever they go. At the same time, it is designed to encourage them to receive medical care overseas when feasible, where the cost of medical care is comparatively less expensive than in the U.S. Combined with other cutting-edge services like our Medical Travel Management program, MP+International benefits and services are positioned to help you and your members take more control of your health care costs, which lends itself to greater premium stability.
It is rare to find a company that offers specialized products and services for the missionary community. As much as we are proud of our history in helping missionaries and mission sending organizations throughout the years, it is we who consider ourselves blessed to have had the opportunity to contribute in some way to the well-being and peace of mind to those who are serving the great commission abroad.

The ability to access quality health care is of paramount importance when a medical emergency arises abroad. From routine medical care to complex case management, from check-ups to emergency medical evacuations, we are there to offer our expertise in cost containment and a unique blend of valuable services including:
Utilization Management is the process of determining whether the services delivered or scheduled to be delivered to a patient are medically necessary and appropriate. By using established national medical guidelines, evaluation is provided for the medical necessity for hospitalizations and out-patient services and the appropriateness of the overall treatment plan.
The key to successfully managing rising health care costs is early identification of catastrophic cases, and then taking action to manage those cases. Precertification is used as a key tool for this early identification of a patient’s entry into the health care system. This allows our medical staff to be proactive in working with both the patient and the providers assuring delivery of health care in the most appropriate and cost-effective manner. Pre-certification is not a guarantee of payment. It is only a review of medical necessity.
Prior to receiving treatment, members will need to precertify the following procedures to avoid a reduction in benefits:
- In-patient treatment
- Surgery or surgical procedure
- Care in an extended care facility
- Home nursing care
- Durable medical equipment
- Artificial limbs
- All transplants
Our medical staff will coordinate care for your members who have highly complex cases requiring detailed management.
These services may include:
- Concurrent review and monitoring of medical services for medical necessity
- Coordination of the hospitalization and any necessary post-discharge care
- Transition of patient to a U.S.-based care manager upon return to the U.S.
If your members have received a hospital bill, there is a possibility that they have been overcharged. Most claim administrators have invested significant amounts of money incorporating claims auditing software in the claims system. The administrator takes the claim review process one step further by examining the details behind documents submitted by the medical provider. Our auditors review medical records to assure that all the services billed were actually delivered and delivered in the quantities billed.
Our goal is to assure that your members only pay for the services that were actually rendered.
Nowhere is an affordable and stable premium more important than within the missionary community. Our cutting-edge services are aimed at providing that needed stability. Claim costs drive premiums. Where your missionaries receive their medical care can, in large part, significantly impact your organization’s claim costs. Encouraging your members to receive their medical care overseas whenever feasible can help you take control and manage your claim costs. As a rule, medical care received in the U.S. will be considerably more costly than the same care received overseas. The more your members receive medical care overseas, the greater the savings in claim cost to your medical plan. The greater the savings, the more stable the premium.
We offer Medical Travel Management, an industry unique service designed to assist your members who are considering expensive medical procedures in the U.S. by incentivizing them to consider receiving that care with qualified providers overseas. The value to your medical plan can be quite substantial when thousands of dollars in cost savings can be realized. And the benefit for your members? They can be paid a percentage of the realized savings when the cost of the procedure performed in the U.S. is greater than the cost of the same procedure incurred overseas. It’s a win-win situation for everyone!
The entire process is managed and coordinated for the benefit of your members by an experienced Case Manager with the full resources, including our in-house physician – the administrator's Chief Medical Officer. Your members are presented with their options so they can make an informed decision. Participants are assigned a designated case manager to help with the preparation of their treatment including:
- Assist in locating an accredited and qualified medical provider(s) to provide the necessary medical services
- Coordinate the necessary services with the participant and with the medical provider, including patient care, travel, scheduling, and housing
- Provide assistance with transfer and receipt of medical records before and after the services provided to the participant
- Provide follow up services to monitor medical needs after return of participant to residence
We are confident that MP+International will provide the quality medical coverage specific to your organization and group members’ needs. For groups of a certain size, MP+International also offers the flexibility to customize benefits. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
